This is the picture of a free hand lotus drawn by an elderly lady. I do not know her name to be mentioned in this website. I love the intricacy and the radial symmetry of this design.

How neat and intricate this one is. I love it very much.. I like the slender yet bold strokes very much.. The decoration on the outer side looks lovely. If lined with kavi would have been extremely grand..

What a lovely kolam! And what patience and enthusiasm that lady must have had to draw such an intricately twined one. I know foe people like Lakshmi , Sudha, Indu or Rajamma ma'am, this will be jujupi, but to me it's just amazing!

ரொம்பவும் அழகான கோலம். இந்த அழகுக்கு, நாலு மூலையிலும் இருக்கும் டிசைன் வெண்சாமரம் வீசுவதுபோல் உள்ளது. Thanks a lot for sharing this. Hats off to that lady. By the by, ur face look very familiar Mahalakshmi, Where are you from?

Maha maam this is a marvelous design... what thin lines uff ... I cant imagine putting thin lines like this... I remember Jayanthi maam had put a kolam like this during our Bangalore meet.... Unfortunately I didnt see her putting the design as I was engrossed in another rangoli... but I did see the final result... it was sort of like this...

The fact that it is done by an elderly lady...wow!!! She must have got a backache by the time she finished these strokes.God Bless her!!!!So that she does more and more of these marvels....what symettry and steady hand!!! The outside borders add a superb touch to the kolam!!!! Lakshmi Jayaraman
